Subject: Ask Dad
The acting style of the son was considered high comedy by the audiences of the era, though seen as stilted and awkward by today's standards. Close listening reveals a syncopated delivery of the lines which might have been the ancestor of the modern comedic pause. (And, um,....yeah.) Similar comedic character portrayals can be found in the early Fred Astaire films.

Subject: engaging comedy
The contrivances of the plot are fairly predictable, but this isn't really about the plot for me, but the generally sharp dialogue. It isn't a constant stream of comedy, but there is rather a lot of comedy squeezed into the film.
Overall, well worth a watch.
Subject: Dialogue-based comedy
For some reason it reminded me of "The Importance of being Ernest".
Having said all of that -- I laughed very hard at this movie.
